I haven't had a rifle rack in so long, I don't even know where we can carry rifles like this anymore.  Anybody have any information on your state?

People do it where I live all the time.  I see guns everyday in the back of trucks like that. 
Lifetime warranty and excellent customer service don't mean a thing when your gun fails during a zombie attack.

Same thing in Arizona.  No laws prohibiting this.

I believe you can in Texas, too.....but of course, you don't see it in DFW.  I haven't even seen one out in the boondocks.   Of course, in OBAMAVILLE, everything would be stolen.  I used to have one 35 years ago in the Rockies.....


.....except those racks always wore a bright spot on your barrels!!   Soap Box

They are legal but you don't see em around here anymore. Guaranteed invite for a break-in!!!

I keep my truck on the ragged side. Figure they will assume there is little of value inside.

Take care of Soldiers, Show em how its done and do it with em, Run to the Fight & and hold your ground! I die my men go home! If you're a NCO and this ain't you. GET OUT! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Hard to believe but it's legal in New York. See them all the time.

I drove all over ten or twelve states years ago with a rack in the back.  The Park Ticket Taker in Yellowstone ( a girl...) asked me if I would hide my rifle in 1981.  A Marlin 39A.  I stuck it behind the seat right there at the Entrance.  

When we lived up in Missoula I took the gun off and put it inside the house.  Too big of a town.  Although I used to have the gun hanging in the truck while in Casper.  

I once accidentally left the keys in the ignition all night in Gillette, Wyoming.  Rifle and all....it was winter so the window was probably up....

I have a rifle rack on my atv, but although legal, I wouldn't think of putting one in my truck in the 21st Century, unless it was in an old work truck that permanently stayed on a farm or wooded property year-round, never venturing off the property. I like my guns too much to put a blinking "steal me" neon sign in the back window of my ride.

Dad used to have one in the back of his GMC Sierra. He put his shotgun in it during hunting season, from time to time. It's funny because I don't remember him ever saying he was worried about it being "stolen" back in the day in SE Iowa.

Yep, we had gun racks in all our trucks when I was a kid, growing up in Winnsboro, TX. Everybody knew everybody. Same mentality there; we never gave any thought to someone stealing from us. I don't even remember us locking our house back then. I see the world of my youth kinda like a Norman Rockwell painting in my mind's eye. Although the current neighborhood I live in is still pretty much like that, overall, I wish I still lived in that world.

Hell, I had a rifle in my truck all the time in my high school parking lot during the fall, as I usually went deer hunting right after school. Back then, if I told one of my male teachers I had a rifle in my truck, he'd likely either say "let's go take a look at it" or he'd tell me about the one he had in his truck.

When I was in the 8th grade, my biology teacher was an assistant football coach. This guy was as big a hunter as I was/am. As part of a discussion about anatomy, he actually brought a deer hunting video to class so we could see shot placement. When the video ended, he asked us why one shot shown on the video was "good" and another was "bad" so he could tie that into his lesson on anatomy and describe what happened biologically with each shot impact.

One time I forgot to bring my homework to class with me. I told him "sorry, coach; I left my homework at home." I'll never forget his response: "if you were going deer hunting, would you bring your aught-six or your .22 with ya?"

My dad took me on a deer hunt once and took me out of school early on a Friday. That Thursday, I told coach I wouldn't be in class the following day, because my dad was taking me deer hunting. He not only gave me an excused absence (as did my other teachers, as it was pretty common for kids to be absent from school at times during deer season) but praised my dad for his priorities and for raising me right.

All of the above is 100% true!
Ted

Wow!!  And that was probably in the seventies!!  It was the same with me, but, my experiences were all back in the sixties....

....teachers brought rifles to school ( in their cars...), teachers would talk guns and reloading, etc. to us farm boys during study halls if we sat up close their desk like a little Cub Scout meeting....we used to roam the halls between classes with our books and a Gun Digest or Shooter's Bible in the stack, for looking at during study halls ( or Biology class!!!  Laugh )....


It's probably still that way up in Wyoming.  I know that the Farson, Wyoming High School is closed for the whole first week of hunting season!!  ( ...as of 2004, anyway...)   



Heck, our school was only closed for the First Day of deer season!!   Whatever

Back in the 50's we could take off opening day of both pheasant and deer season.
